WINC Middle Women Housing Fund


Extensive research and international experience have proven that mixed tenure cohousing with women with varying financial assets and skills, coming together in a mutually supportive environment, not only facilitates a healthy ageing process but also translates into positive impacts for the wider community.  

WINC  has planned for 30 small, private homes with extensive common facilities to provide a perfect balance of private and shared spaces.  The community will include 17 women who will fund themselves, 4 social housing tenants, and 9 ‘middle women’ who need your help.

‘Middle women’ have some assets ($100-250k) – making them ineligible for social housing – but they don’t have enough financial means to secure a permanent home outright. They are also precluded from accessing commercial financing to buy a home. As a result, these middle women are likely to spend their limited savings on high rent and end up becoming homeless in a few years’ time.

WINC is creating a $2 million Middle Women Housing Fund (‘MWHF’) specifically targeted at providing shared equity to enable these low-income middle women to buy into the WINC community, preventing their future homelessness.  

With your donations, the MWHF will co-purchase with 9 middle women now and will also help future middle women. As these homes change hands, the MWHF will re-use your donation to assist future middle women co-own their homes. Your donation will thus have a long-lasting impact.  

Matrix Guild, a registered DGR1 charity, is auspicing donations for WINC.
